Newt Gingrich defended himself before a church congregation Sunday, touching on the reason some of his opponents, and some voters, might consider him a flawed presidential candidate.
“I don’t come here today as a perfect person. I don’t come here today without, I guess the advertisement is, baggage,” Gingrich said. “I am a person, I’ve lived a fairly long life.”
He told those gathered for the Sunday service at the Cathedral of Praise that he is “somebody who has the courage to stand up and tell the truth, somebody who is prepared to fight for the America that you and I believe in.”
